ATF RESCINDS PRIOR METHODS TO MEASURE A FIREARM’S OVERALL LENGTH WHEN EQUIPPED WITH A STABILIZING BRACE
Based on this letter, it is safe to say that ATF is taking the position that firearms equipped with stabilizing braces need to have their overall length measured with the brace folded or to the end of the receiver extension if the brace is stationary and non-adjustable. Adding a vertical foregrip to a firearm that has an overall length of less than 26 inches results in the making of an AOW, which is subject to the National Firearms Act.

This Whole mess is only if you're interested in putting VFG's on correct? If you aren't into VFG's or if you like AFG's, nothing has changed correct?

That is how I read it.

Of course between the lines I read it as the ATF does not feel that law abiding Americans should own guns, only cartel members.

If people would quit asking for clarification or to poke the bear in the eye, definitions like this would probably not happen. Just shut up and buy and use your pistol, and don't ask for 'clarification'.
